Oregon continues to roll on the 2021 recruiting trail with ESPN 300 wide receiver Dont’e Thornton committing to the Ducks on Tuesday.
He chose Oregon over offers from Auburn, LSU, and Florida.
Thornton - the 88th overall prospect and 13th ranked receiver, according to ESPN - is a six-foot-five, 185-pound wideout out of Mount St. Joseph High School in Baltimore, Maryland. He becomes Oregon’s third receiving commit inside ESPN’s top 100 recruits.
He now joins No. 69 Troy Franklin and No. 58 Isaiah Brevard in what is shaping up to be another impressive class for head coach Mario Cristobal.
The Ducks are coming off an impressive 2020 recruiting cycle that saw the school land promising young stars in Justin Flowe, Dontae Manning, and Noah Sewell.
Thornton’s decision moves Oregon up to 14 ESPN 300 commits.
The new addition provides a spark to the Ducks as they continue to prepare for their 2020 season opener against Stanford on Nov. 7.
